Royal Sonesta Hotel, New OrleansSunday, February 04, 2007
Av's Krewe marched this weekend, so we stayed a couple of days at the Royal Sonesta Hotel (300 Bourbon Street). The really neat thing was that the parade route went right down Bienville, and when we made the reservations, we got a room with a balcony on the Bienville side of the hotel so that I could have a really good view of everything!
Here's the room:
This is our balcony - so pretty - right across the street is the Saint Ann/Marie Antoinette Hotel...
We had a view of the street and down to the corner of Bienville and Bourbon - see the Lucky Dog cart in front of the Old Absinthe House?
One of the neatest things was that one evening, a wedding party came out of the hotel across the street:
...and here are a few seconds of them celebrating with really great band:
Tomorrow I'll post some pics from the Krewe du Vieux!
